New Price Tracking, More Features Comes to Google Flights, Hotel Search and Google Trips

With the end of the year’s fast approaching, Google has just in time to help travellers plan their long weekend getaway introduced a new set of tools to Flights search, Trips, and in search results for hotels.

Google Flights now by using machine learning and statistical analysis of historical flights data will display tips under search results to guide travellers towards the best time to book flights. You can even scroll through the results to figure out more.

Flights will also show tips that may say, like “prices are less than normal” if the flights from your destination are cheaper than usual and by how much to indicate you’d spotted a deal. Or, based on a price prediction algorithms, it’ll dispaly “won’t drop further” if prices tend to remain steady for the date and place you’re searching for.
